My Dr have ask me to do a Hba1c the next few days.. I have not been good with my numbers lately.. I have been eating out a lot and busy with my work..

Does that means the blood Test shows the 3 months blood levels average or just the past week or day ?

I am kind of worried now... :confused::confused:

An HbA1c will give you roughly a 3 month average but it is weighted towards the last several weeks. Since it measures the amount of glycation, the sugar or glucose that sticks to your blood molecules it sometimes may not correlate 100% to your bg readings. Mine usually comes in higher than my average bg readings.
